Will Media Attack Maher for Calling Koran ‘A Hate-filled Book’ and Saying Muslim Extremists are America’s Greatest Threat? | NewsBusters.org

BILL MAHER, HOST: So let me get to the part where I think you may not agree with me which is I do agree that there are other groups that pose a terrorist threat to this country. There are right-wing militias who are nutty and the Ku Klux Klan and abortion bombers and Timothy McVeigh types. I would say that the threat potentially from radicalized Muslims is a unique and greater threat. It is the greatest threat.

Let me give you the reasons why I jotted down why. One, it’s been going on a thousand years this problem between Islam and the west. We are dealing with a culture that is in its medieval era. It comes from a hate-filled holy book, the Koran, which is taken very literally by its people. They are trying to get nuclear weapons. I don’t think Tim McVeigh would ever have tried to get a nuclear weapon because I think right-wing nuts they think they love this country and they are not trying to destroy this country. They want to get it away from the people they see as hijacking it. That’s different than Muslim extremists who want to destroy it. And also, it’s a culture of suicide bombing, which is hard to deter from people who want to kill themselves.

REPRESENTATIVE KEITH ELLISON (D-MINNESOTA): Well, I’ll tell you, Bill, I think you should investigate this issue a little more because I think that you’re lumping together things that shouldn’t be lumped together and you’re casting a very wide net and therefore coming to the wrong conclusions. First of all, when you talk about they’re trying to get nuclear weapons, are you referring to Iran? Who are you talking about? Al Qaeda?

MAHER: I think anyone who is influenced by al Qaeda and the statements of Osama bin Laden, and that’s…

ELLISON: Yeah, but Muslims aren’t. I mean, there is 1.4 billion Muslims in the world.

MAHER: Of course. No one is disputing that the vast, vast, giant majority of Muslims are not the problem. We’re talking about a very small percentage, but it just takes one. That’s what we’re talking about when we’re talking about terrorism, and obviously there is something that is going on that they’re getting from the Koran.

  1. islams not for me Says:

    In dunno I guess its just me…

    I see the KKK and other ‘christian identity’ movements linked by a common thread of anti-semitism of which is in islam as well.

    Both movements have a theocratic branch that does indeed threaten the typical American systems we have lived under for many years.

    Unlike the ‘christian’ id movement malarky the moslem theocrats would like to destroy ALL systems that America has and replace it with islam.

    Both groups are ENEMIES of the good and bad in America and should be dealt with as necessary.

  2. Leatherneck Says:

    Well, the vast majority of Muslims are the problem. The Koran is a hate filled book from Lucifer.

    That is how I feel, and the evidence points in the above stated direction.

    Screw Islam.

  3. John Sobieski Says:

    Is Maher’s ‘useful idiot’ time up? Ellison would have lashed out at anyone else who would say the Koran is a hate book. Ellison is unsure, so he tried to be nice, but Maher’s usefulness may not outweigh his outspoken comment. Wonder if the CAIR will demand an apology, and would Maher oblige?

    I believe all of the Muslim’s are a problem.. They are stuck in the 5th century-their religion has not developed- It’s stuck also-They refer all the time to their Koran, (which is a poisoned book)-they are unable to truly live in the Western world, (they want to change us).. I wish they stayed at home in their countries..

  5. tgusa Says:

    Maher and the left have made millions bashing Christians. One would think that he would rather live aside anyone except Christians. I believe that if you can’t beat em, perhaps you need to make an agreement. Well, my question is what if Christians and Muslims come to an agreement, Muslims in their areas practicing what the want to practice and Christians in their own area doing the same? Where exactly does that leave Maker and his crew?
